The 4-1-1 On Laser Hair Removal

It’s a fact of life that most people have body hair. We’re all mammals, after all—it’s science.  Over evolution, body hair regulated body temperature and protected delicate areas. But today, many people don’t need body hair and prefer going smooth. We spent so much money and time shaving, waxing, and using depilatory creams. However, you have another, painless, permanent option! Learn more about the laser hair removal Baton Rouge trusts to look and feel their smoothest. 

How Does Hair Removal Work?

So, the results sound great, but how exactly does hair removal work? Laser hair removal uses—you guessed it—lasers. Laser pulses target hair follicles to damage them, preventing future hair from growing. Results are permanent—unlike shaving, which just removes the hair on the surface, or waxing, which removes the hair temporarily. Here’s what happens in a typical session:   

  1. You’ll meet your technician who will get you settled in and comfortable. Then, using the GentleMax Pro machine, the technician emits a small laser pulse into the skin. 
  2. Many people compare the feeling on their skin to a light rubber band snap. This sensation resolves quickly. Additionally, cool air keeps your skin comfortable throughout treatment.
  3. There is typically no downtime or healing required. Remember, it’s not removing or damaging skin! Treated areas may appear flushed or slightly red—but that will fade within the first week. 
  4. Most situations and goals require multiple visits. Your technician can help figure out what approach works best for you. Results can depend on the type of treatment and the size of the area. 

More Than Hair Removal

In addition to removing hair, the GentleMax Pro addresses a variety of skin concerns. These include reducing painful or unsightly veins in the face and leg, as well as tightening and rejuvenating the skin. The laser pulse doesn’t damage the skin because it bypasses the surface. It targets skin imperfections, clearing melanin and pigments by converting them to heat. Additionally, the heat energy stimulates the skin’s natural healing response. This reaction creates new collagen to gradually remodels and resurfaces the area.
